Look at your Android phone. Tap on the new "Sunrise-Sunset" app and learn immediately the legal times of the day to shoot at your location. It's so simple you'll think it's cheating, but it's not.
Tested by Wisconsin conservation wardens, the app has been developed by the Department of Natural Resources Bureau of Law Enforcement to answer your needs.
Using a GPS system, the app tells you to the second the opening and closing time for various hunting seasons for your current location.
You also can use it to learn the opening and closing times for locations anywhere in the state or for future dates.
Just turn on your phone's GPS.
The app comes complete with a state time zone map tab, an informational tab and an email shortcut to notify the DNR about app needs and issues.
